. there is a disadvantage to a piecemeal bill, if you pass, for example, issues for educated people to get a visa, and they're taking care of, you lose a certain amount of support for the other issues. i do not think we should decide that. i think the senator is doing a great service by raising this issue. i think our colleagues at this meeting, i met this morning with the person -- he and i actually talk a lot. i believe we should move forward on all of the arrangements so that the hill will develop an understanding about all of these issues and finally decide whether they will do it in one, too, or three pieces. that is the least of our worry. the fact is they do it. we will continue to talk about a comprehensive bill. >> i am delighted that senator rubio is helping folks take the issue of immigration reform as seriously as he is taking it. he is providing leadership on that and we are appreciative. i think it is great to see movement on both sides of the aisle. whether or not it is comprehensive or individual pieces is to be determined by leadership in the house and senate in consultation with the presi

spend on everything from education to public safety less as a share of the economy that has been true for a generation. that is not a recipe for growth. we have to do more to stabilize the finances over the medium and long-term, and also spur more growth in the short term. i have said i am hoping to making modest adjustments to programs like medicare to protect them for future generations. i also said we need more revenue for tax reform by closing loopholes for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we consult the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. it turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate over this issue, and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they do not think it is fair to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care or a scientist to shut down like that saving research so that a multi millionaire investor can take less in tax rates then a

with him about education reform. where i seem to take issue more is on particularly these negotiations where there is always this assumption that if you just held the line and were own manly, that republicans would somehow fade and cave immediately. but their elections have consequences too. they do control the house of representatives. they have enough seats to block legislation in the senate and their incentives are very different particularly in the house, and standing up to obama for them is great politics. it just creates a very difficult situation, and sometimes people like us who are comfortable and don't have to worry about getting our unemployment benefits extended it's easy for us to say he should be strong and tough, and let's call their buff and see what happens if we default on our obligations, but, you know, if the president is elected to be the president, he is supposed to look out for the economy, and even an economic catastrophe for which republicans were blamed would still be an economic catastrophe. and i think sometimes people forget there
